  1. I hope so. You mean the Ryzen 5 3600, right? How is AMD doing in GPU passthrough? I have heard bad feedbacks about that. Maybe they fixed that.
  2. The only problem is that I would like to know the estimated performance of that VM before investing in a totally new build. I would like to have the full performance of an i3 3220 in the gaming VM and have the X5450's performance in any other tasks. (dockers, Plex, shares etc...) And unfortunately, it's pretty hard to understand for me that will the i5 8400's 2 thread outperform a full i3-3220?
  3. I'm going to run unRAID. In fact, I'm using it now. I would run benchmarks if I had the hardware but that's why I'm asking it because I'm going to buy a newer i5 but I don't know how much performance I'm going to have in a "gaming" VM if I use only the half or 3/4 of the CPU's full performance.
  4. Hi everyone! I'm looking for a newer build to replace my s775 server. In the future, I would like to run "Gaming" VM for very light remote gaming using Parsec. My current gaming pc has an i3-3220 and its performance is nearly enough for me. Now, I would like to understand that how can I calculate the performance of the assigned "CPU" of that VM? Is there any function for that? For example, will an i5-8400's 2 or 4 thread performance match the i3-3220's full, 2c/4t performance or outperform that? I'm trying to calculate with Passmark's single thread performance score. Like a newer Xeon's 2-4 thread's performance vs a full 4 core old X5450? If it matters, beside the Windows VM, I'm going to run an Ubuntu VM for mainly a small web server. (Little power is enough for it. Currently running on 2 threads of the X5450 Xeon. Perfect) + 5-7 dockers which contain Plex as well. (usually 720p internal stream, barely need to transcode 1080p) Thank you in advance for your help! I hope, it's understandable. (Sorry for my grammar mistakes, English is not my native language.)
  5. Thank you for your answer! I will definitely check out the RTX 2060 KO! My father looked strange because of the "Gaming" title but today's games need a lot more horsepower then my father's drawings.
  6. Budget (including currency): 250.000Ft-400.000Ft (Hungarian Forint) = 800USD-1300USD Country: Hungary Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: AutoCAD Civil 3D 2016-2018, AutoCAD 2018 Other details Hi everyone! I'm looking for a build to replace my father's old workstation for a new one. Currently, his "fastest" workstation at his office has an i5-2400, 16GB of RAM and a Quadro FX 3800. Of course, with a WD Black HDD. It's struggling with 2D basic utility drawings which takes up about 5-15MB/file, so nothing heavy. When other things are running in the background, it's nearly useless. (I know, an SSD would be a big upgrade but AutoCAD is still lagging badly.) Currently, he's using 2 FHD monitors which won't be upgraded in the near future. Maybe after 5 years, 4K displays will be more consumer-friendly and affordable. Nothing 3D or very heavy task. He wants a future-proof computer, so he asked for his IT guy. He offered my dad a 3300USD workstation which is in my opinion, totally unnecessary. That one would have an i9-7920x, 64GB of RAM and a Quadro P4000. Now, he also sent me a link for an HP Z Tower G4 which is running on a Xeon-E-2274G, 32GB of RAM and a Quadro P2200. (+ 512GB PCIe SSD) I couldn't find price for that but with the same CPU, 16GB of RAM, half the storage and with integrated graphics, it costs between 1500-2000USD. This looks good but very expensive. I searched for an image what my father draws usually. Or something similar, maybe 2x bigger. (I will search for more similar drawings if needed or link one of his work if possible.) As I know, AutoCAD is not really a multithreaded application, so as I understand, the Single-thread performance on passmark is a very good point of the performance of that CPU. Now, I also made a list what I would buy which is this: Ryzen 3 3300X start with 16GB of RAM and upgrade that later if needed and a Quadro P2200. The other parts doesn't matter for now. (SSD, nice PSU, basic case, motherboard with 4 RAM slots, it doesn't need to be fancy, just a basic turnon-work-turnoff) As I checked the scores and comparisons, the Ryzen has a better single-core performance. I checked it on Passmark and on UserBenchmark. The Ryzen's TDP is half of the i9's. During these drawings, I don't think that the i9 would have a huge advantage at that price point. My father runs a single-employee business (him), so it would be good if the workstation was not really expensive. Thank you very much for any help or advice! Please, correct me if I'm wrong somewhere!
  7. I have an older server PSU board with 2 replaceable power supplies but the only problem is that the CPU cable is an 8 pin cable and not splittable. The reason for that I think is it has 4 black wires and 2 yellow ones but on of the yellow ones is not next to the other, so it's not connected if I plug it in a 4 pin connector. As I know, the yellow is the 12V, the black is Ground. What I would like to do is to use a cable of a disassembled 230V cable, plug the end next to the target yellow wire and put the other end to the empty pin hole, so it can be connected to the motherboard's connector. But as I'm not an electrician, I would like to ask that is it actually save to use? I won't touch it, of course. The used cable is not a bare copper and it's one of the 3 cables in a 230V wire. Thank you in advance! Don't blame me if it's a bad idea! I took a picture of the cable.
  8. I'm planning to dive into Virtualization. My current system can't pass through a GPU to VM because it has only 1 GPU. (it's an lga775 system) I'm going to get parts for a dedicated VM-Server with GPU passthrough but I can't decide that the parts I have chosen are enough. So I'm going to get an i5-2400 or a 3470 CPU with 8GB of RAM. I already have GPUs. For the motherboard, I'm looking for a model which has at least 2 PCIe slots and supports VT-x and VT-d. Is there anything else I should look for? I was told that the FX-8350 is getting pretty cheap and it has 8 cores but as I know, it can cook itself as it needs more than 120W, so I would need to look for a pretty big cooler, too. For VMs, I will try to use unRAID as host OS, Windows 10 for very light gaming (Assetto Corsa, often GTAV) and Ubuntu for mail-server or I will try to run macOS. I won't run 3 VMs at the same time but I think, I will run 2. On macOS, I will do everyday tasks and little Xcode programming, so nothing very heavy. 1-2GB of RAM to Ubuntu, 6GB to Windows. I don't think that I will run Windows and macOS at the same time, so I don't think that I need to worry about RAM. I'm also checking the LGA1366 Xeons with VT-x and VT-d but I can't really find motherboards for them with at least 3-4 PCIe slots for under 100 bucks. Will an i5-2400 be enough for at least 2 VMs? I don't want to go higher than 40 bucks for CPU.
